Basement Insulation Installation Specifics

Because the basement is more connected to other living spaces than the outside of the house, insulating basement walls is preferable to insulating the basement ceiling. Each has its own advantages.

Exterior wall basement insulation:

  • Requires less insulation than insulating the basement’s ceiling
  • Maintains continuous thermal and air leakage boundaries
  • Reduces heat loss through the foundation of your home
  • Allows for minimal increase in the size of heating and cooling equipment
  • Reduces the risk of condensation and mildew in the basement

Interior basement ceiling insulation (often the more cost-effective option for insulating your basement):

  • Is less expensive to install, especially for pre-existing buildings
  • Uses almost any material (blown-in cellulose, fiberglass, etc.)
  • Eliminates unwanted pests
  • Is isolated from the cold climate outdoors, compared to exterior wall insulation
